Heaven is God’s home. Praise God, it’s our home too!
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Revelation 21:4
If you live in an older home, like I do, you’re dealing with stains and cracks and constant repairs. When I visit friends in their brand-new homes, I look longingly at the unmarked woodwork and painted walls, the fresh, unstained carpet. It’s all fresh.
Our planet is thousands of years old — maybe even millions. And it’s showing signs of age. But it wasn’t created to last forever. A new heaven and a new earth are being prepared!
In Revelation, John gives us a vision of heaven’s perfection. It’s perfect because God is there. He says you and I “will be his people” there. In heaven, God Himself will be with us and be our God (Revelation 21:3).
Heaven is God’s home. Praise God, it’s our home too! It’s the home of our dreams.
